“Competing at the highest level of poker requires focus and mental toughness.

Without Elliot’s help, I wouldn’t have been able to become the #1 ranked poker player in the world.

I look forward to continuing working with Elliot as I attempt to match, or surpass, that success in other ventures.”


“Elliot helped me at a time in my life when I needed it the most.

After suffering a brain injury, almost dying, and losing everything, he helped piece me back together in ways that I didn’t think were possible.

I had never considered hypnotherapy before, but after our first session together, I was speechless and am eternally grateful for his help.”

Mike Dillard

 “Elliot is the best I’ve seen at identifying subconscious blocks you have that are keeping you from achieving the level of performance that you want and also Elliot is the best at being able to release those blocks immediately on the spot! I would highly recommend working with Elliot if you want to take your performance to the next level!”

Cole Gordon

Peter Peltzer

“I have dreamed about launching a space company since being a teenager, yet succeeding at doing so requires not just luck and capital, but rugged determination and exceptional focus.

Without Elliot’s help, I wouldn’t have been able to build a unicorn and list it in an IPO on the New York Stock Exchange.

I am looking forward to Elliot’s continued coaching as I work on continued growth, not just in my space company, but other ventures as well.”

“Working with Elliot has resulted in a doubling of my business revenue and an increase in a profound sense of ease and freedom from anxiety that I wouldn’t have thought possible to achieve in such a short time.

In addition, he was able to help me put to bed lingering internal narratives that I didn’t realize were holding me back in virtually every life until they simply weren’t there anymore. I recommend him and Primed Mind to all my clients.”

Mollie McGlocklin

“After overcoming a traumatic upbringing, and becoming a self made man, my work with Elliot allowed me to overcome the unhealthy motivators which had gotten me only so far in life and find real fulfillment.

2021 marked a significant downturn for me both personally and in business. I appeared to be headed for the worst year of my life, but with the tools I had previously mastered and Elliot’s continued support I overcame all obstacles and put myself in position of greater success than I had ever imagined!!! I cannot recommend him and his methodologies strongly enough!!!”

“After a long and traumatic recovery from a concussion that derailed me from my sport for over a year, I realized that I needed to spend more time training my mind.

As an elite athlete, training the body is a given, and it wasn’t until I had to face and overcome a head injury that I realized training my mind was just as important as the physical component.

Elliot has helped me work through the anxieties that came with my injury, and has guided me to paint a clear mental image of success that has aided in my return to the top of the podium once again.”

“To do what I do, you need a focused mind and the confidence to trust your decision making in the face of uncertainty.

From working with Elliot I saw marked improvements in each of those areas, as well as the ability to step back and enjoy life more.”

Haralabos Voulgaris

“I think it was the most transformative thing I’ve done to this point in my life. I’ve done many plant medicine sessions, I’ve done neurofeedback, which is said to be transformative, I’ve done tons of meditation sessions.

I’ve never done any psychotherapy like that but as far as feeling an immediate shift that seems to have stuck as far as how I feel about myself, my overall feeling tone and energy was completely different after two hours.”

Ben Pakulski

James Haskell

“After not getting selected for the national team and dealing with injuries, I wasn’t in the right place mentally.

My mindset improved immediately after our first session, and I’m able to reach new levels of performance and focus because of my work with Elliot.

It’s been invaluable, and I’d recommend it to anyone looking to self-improve.”

“Elliot helped me to go from knowing what I should do to doing it.

I always felt I had more to give and now my mind feels free to go about accomplishing my mission of bringing Functional Medicine lab testing and Integrative Health to the world.

If you’re looking to take your life to the next level, Elliot is the person that can help get you there.”

Stephen Cabral

“Before working with Elliot, mindset was a major deterrent to my gambling career. He was the catalyst that propelled me from disappointing results to the top tier of DFS.

I wouldn’t be competing at the highest stakes without him.”

Scott Blumstein

“Making the WSOP Main Event Final Table is every poker player’s dream, and it’s hard to understand the pressure and intensity of the moment until you experience it yourself.

Working with Elliot allowed me to stay calm, maintain focus, and execute the plays that led me to win it all for $8,150,000.”

“Everyone, wherever they are in their career can find parts of themselves to level up and improve.

Working with Elliot has helped me understand my subconscious drivers in a new way enabling me to continue progressing forward.

I’ve also recommended Elliot to friends and business associates and the feedback has been excellent.

If you’re looking to reach the top but feel something is holding you back it’s worth seeing if Elliot can help.”

Eric Worre

“In 2014 my mindset caused me to fall short of making my 2nd Olympic Team, and I went into early retirement from my sport.

After 2.5 years of not training, I decided to give it one more shot, and needed my mind to be in the right place if it was going to work. That’s when I found Elliot Roe.

In addition to making the team, I was the only US female to race every distance in 2018 Olympic Games. Elliot propelled my mindset and performance toa whole new level.”

Lana Gehring

TJ Dillashaw

Former UFC Bantamweight Champion

“I had never been put in the type of stressful scenario as I was for the title defense against Joe Soto and Elliot helped ease the tension of that situation.

The mind is a powerful tool and he helped in showing me how to use it to my highest benefits.”

“When I started working with Elliot, I had already been working as a financial trader for ten years and had achieved reasonable success.

Through our sessions, Elliot pinpointed areas that needed work and helped me push through mental barriers that had been holding me back.

In the year that followed, I have had my most successful year to date and have a clearer mental path to my ultimate goals.”

Oliver Thomas

Financial Broker

“Elliot has been instrumental to accelerating both my personal growth as well as my company’s. Founding and operating a software business is a long, tough road that requires continual self-improvement.

Elliot fixed my mindset, solidifying the foundation upon which my growth as a founder has been built. He’s helped me think better, be more centered, and operate more effectively than I thought was possible. He’s also provided much-needed perspective in times of difficulty.

Ambitious professionals, like professional athletes, need someone in their corner to help light the way when they’re deep in the weeds. I know can count on Elliot to be in my corner.”

Matthew Slipper

Founder And CTO Kyokan

Jess Johnson

Business Mentor

“Before finding Elliot, I was starting to lose hope in my ability to heal from my traumatic past. I had worked with therapists, healers, and multiple other mindset coaches but nothing really seemed to help me create dramatic changes in the way that I was feeling and showing up in my life & business on a day to day basis.

Elliot changed my life. I could literally cry in gratitude as I write these words. Not only did he help me heal, but through our work together I’ve been able to get out of my own way, substantially grow my business, and find more happiness within my life.

If you’re considering working with him, do it. Hypnotherapy is an extremely powerful tool and Elliot is truly a master of his craft. I couldn’t speak more highly about my experience working with him, he truly is the best of the best.”

“For the last 20 years, I have competed at the highest levels in Muay Thai, K1, and the UFC, where having a strong and focused mind is essential. Elliot has been one of the most important factors in my success, I owe my career to Elliot and continue my work with him to reach my goals.”

James McSweeny

Professional Fighter

“As poker gets more and more competitive, you really need to be on top of all aspects of your game to compete at the highest levels.

Elliot quickly identified issues I didn’t even know where affecting my game and helped me deal with the most important ones.

I can feel the difference every day, both when I play and in my personal life. The success I’ve had this year was in no small part because of my sessions with Elliot.”

Ben Heath

Robert Drysdale

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion

“Elliot’s mental coaching has helped me a lot to prepare for some of the most important moments in my life.

Having a sharp mind when it matters is the difference between succeeding and failing in any endeavor. I highly recommend him.”

“Working with Elliot has been transformative for my personal life and career. While I had achieved great success prior to meeting Elliot, I still felt that my potential had not been fully realized. I had succeeded in many aspects of my life, but I had lost balance; my personal and professional status quo was not sustainable.

Elliot helped me achieve profound mental and emotional clarity and guided me in breaking through barriers which I had previously only compensated for. He helped me dare to grow and to realize my potential in my relationships and career.

I cannot recommend Elliot’s coaching approach enough. He has helped me achieve dramatic shifts, enabling greater successes. I will achieve much more in my personal and professional life thanks to Elliot’s coaching; I am in his debt.”

Dr. John Ratliff

Stanford's Spinal Neurosurgeon | Vice Chair and Professor of Neurosurgery

“I had done my share of personal growth trainings, participated in various workshops, and worked one on one with individual therapists and coaches before meeting Elliot. By my industry’s standards I was successful. And yet, even as I couldn’t quite identify what was holding me back, I knew far more was possible for me in terms of serving others and achieving financial success.

Elliot’s expertise as a coach and hypnotherapist have helped me dramatically shift my relationship to success; the results are evident in my internal ease, clarity of focus, and in my bank account.”

“Elliot helped me overcome barriers to success in my subconscious that I wasn’t even aware existed. His expert understanding of emotions and mental processes helped me elevate my self-awareness and in turn my performance in nearly every facet of my life.

Whether at the poker table or in personal relationships, Elliot has helped me improve the way I see things.”

“Working with Elliot has given me so much mental strength.

Before going on to The Ultimate Fighter, one of the most difficult mental and physical experiences a fighter can go through, I had many sessions with Elliot.

The mindset and mental exercises that I went into the house with was a huge part of my success.

After winning the Ultimate Fighter show and making it to the finals to fight for the first ever UFC Strawweight Title, I had a roller coaster of emotions, stresses, and pressure to deal with. And I did it!

Thank you Elliot for helping me become the first ever UFC Strawweight Champion!”

Carla Esparza

1st UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion

“When I started with Elliot, I was pretty deep in make-up and was miserable at life.

With Elliot’s help, I was able to turn it around.

Now I am an owner of one of the biggest poker stables in the world, and I’ve won millions playing poker.

He played a huge part in my success.”

Filipe Oliveira

Gabriel Goffi

“I really recommend Elliot. He is one of the best mental coaches around and helped me a lot, not just with poker, but in all aspects of my life. Thanks for everything, Elliot.”

“In the high-stakes world of poker, as well as in the sports and memorabilia business where I broker 6 & 7 figure deals, I need a clear mind.

Elliot gives that to me. He is the master at crafting a vision and creating a mindset that makes business and life easier.”

Jason Koonce

“Working with Elliot was by far one of the best business decisions I have ever made. After our first call, I landed a contract worth 3x my monthly income, after our second call I more than doubled my annual income.

He has a unique way to identify and eliminate anything that has been holding you back from what it is that you truly desire and helping you create the life that you deserve. His no BS approach, while direct, is softened by his great accent which just makes the calls even better.

I’m beyond grateful to have worked with him and look forward to seeing how much more life can expand from future sessions.”

“When I met Elliot, I was in one of the darkest times of my life after having everything taken away from me, having multiple failing businesses, and with my health in the gutter.

Within weeks I started to operate at a higher level, and within months, everything changed. My lights are on, and business is booming.

Elliot sees the holes and gaps in your life and shows you exactly what you need to do to repair them. Elliot is a genius at what he does, but most importantly, Elliot is a great leader and mentor.

Very few people in the world get an opportunity to work with someone like Elliot, and if you are lucky enough to have the privilege then get ready, because you’re about to explode into your full potential and greatness.”

“I have been through basically every self-help/self-progression avenue you could possibly take, and I can safely say that Elliot has changed my life more than anything.

I had deep seeded phobias removed in a matter of weeks. I had blockages around love and relationships dissolved down to the point where I’ve never felt more love for another person than I do in my current relationship.

The overall success I see in my life has broken through all time highs and I’m confident much more is to come.”

Mark Herm

LFG Global

“Elliot and I have been working together for a few years now and he’s someone that I turn to when stress levels run high.

Being a trader at the highest levels of stocks, crypto and NFT’s means there is a constant barrage of volatility in my day to day life. Using Elliot as a performance coach to help smooth out my day to day and help me focus has been paramount to gaining consistency and discipline.

I definitely recommend Elliot to anyone struggling with discipline issues, stress, or anyone dealing with volatility in their personal or work life. A mindset coach is an amazing tool to have your dispense when things get too chaotic to conquer alone.”

“I’m incredibly thankful that I’ve had the opportunity to work with Elliot throughout my poker career.

He has undoubtedly been a pivotal aid to my success. Whether it be prepping before a big final table, or tackling mental struggles with poker or everyday life, a session with Elliot often feels like magic to shifting my focus and mindset.

I’ve grown so much as a poker player, and as a person from working with him.”

“I have to admit, I was very skeptical when I first met Elliot at a Mastermind event in 2019. He clearly saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself.

It took just one session to change my mind.

For the first time in a very long time, the noise and chatter disappeared and we addressed a very apparent (to Elliot) block that was limiting my potential. Since then, our time together has been invaluable to my growth.

He not only helps me as a hypnotherapist, but holds me accountable as my coach. I can’t recommend him enough.”

Ben Knegendorf

“I came to see Elliot with a lot on the line. I was successful but really at the edges of my comfort zone in all directions.

Elliot helped me to find old fears and stories that were causing resistance and frustration in my personal life and business.

I am happier and feel more powerful since working with him. Plus, the shifts we worked on increased revenue.”

Brie Sodano

Jason Koon

“Elliot has helped me overcome and untangle past traumas in my mind that have hindered my present-day performance. I appreciate and look forward to each session I have with him. Each time I end a call with him, I am refreshed and more prepared to take on challenges that extend far beyond the felt.”

“When I started working with Elliot I was having one of my slowest months in business from the previous 12 months. Within 6 weeks I was having one of my best months yet!

Then covid hit and initially my business was disrupted. But with Elliot’s coaching I was able to pivot and make 2020 better than 2019!

I do not understand how it works. But it does! I highly recommend Elliot to any professional who wants to be at the top of their game.”

Rudy Rodriquez

“Working with Elliot has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! After doing all the self-development seminars, masterminds, and online courses… nothing and I really mean nothing, has been as beneficial and created better results than my sessions with Elliot and using his Primed Mind app.

Hypnotherapy may sound weird to people when I first recommend it but the bottom line is that it works and Elliot knows how to navigate business and life matters with honesty, grace and when needed “in the bones” brutal honesty combined with proven unconscious reprogramming of the mental blocks that can stop of us all. Thank you for your work Elliot and for changing my life!”

AJ Yager

Mike Brown

“Elliot helped me break through a subconscious block that was holding me back in ways I didn’t event realize. Unwinding that one piece created a massive day one impact, and the value only grows from there. If you are ready to unlock the next level, Elliot should be your first call.”

“Elliot and I did a ton of work before my second appearance on Big Brother Canada. I did a ton of pre-game preparation with his direction, which led to me winning the entire show.

Elliot has a fantastic ability to help me dial in and reach my absolute potential. Whether it is in elite athletics, business, poker, or in my case, Reality Television, Elliot can definitely help you achieve your most ambitious goals.”

Kevin Martin

Big Brother Canada Season 5 Winner

“Elliot is absolutely brilliant. After three months of working with Elliot we met our goal numbers for the first time in over a year and the third month we had one of our best months ever.

He helped me shift deep-rooted patterns, and I literally feel like a different person. I think my team would say the same. I am working much smarter and not harder.”

Dr. Sheila Kilbane

Phil Galfond

Professional Poker Player | Run It Once Founder

“Elliot prepares me to focus and perform at my best with regularity, but this is somehow the least impactful thing he’s done for me.

Elliot has helped me identify my values, priorities, and problems with such clarity that in the relatively short time we’ve worked together, I’ve been able to make life and career-altering decisions which have led to more happiness, fulfillment, and success.”

“Working with Elliot has been phenomenal. I walked away from the second session thinking, “that alone was worth the entire fee”. Elliot has not only helped me sharpen my thinking around key business decisions but his help with my emotional state related to interactions with my children will have a lifelong impact. His help with how I respond to my kids is invaluable.”

Garret Akerson

“Designing decentralized financial protocols built for massively multi-client blockchains where everyone is a root user requires one to simultaneously maintain both a creative approach to product development and an adversarial, risk-mitigating attitude in order to effectively navigate this high risk, high pressure space.

Elliot keeps me grounded, and focused on what’s important at a subconscious level. Our work together has been essential in my development as an entrepreneur.”


DeFi Founder

Juliana Garcia

Marketing Coach

“As a high achiever, playing at the highest level in my business, being a leader to a fast growing team and hundreds of clients who are game chargers too, having Elliot in my corner in moments of unexpected change and high pressure made everything so much easier to handle.

He’s like ibuprofen to the inflammation of life, except he gets to the root of it so you can maintain the cool headedness for life. He simplifies everything and at the end of each call you walk away feeling clear and capable of more than you imagined possible.”

“The greatest limiting factor in our lives is what we believe; what we believe about others, and more so, what we believe in ourselves. Elliot has the rare ability to see us for who we can be, even when we can’t yet see it in ourselves. He challenges what you believe in a way that forces you to challenge it; to look beyond your stubborn half truths. Elliot has unlocked my confidence about who I am, and what I want. I didn’t know myself before I met him, but at least now I’m learning.”

Nick Eubanks


“Being a successor of my fathers business and taking a failing multi million dollar company to a successful much larger multi million dollar company, what could I be doing wrong? Well, I was drinking wine on a daily basis not realizing not only the damage I was doing to my body but how unfocused I was at work. Elliot helped me see that its ok to have some wine just not on a daily. He helped me see myself in ten years on my current pace and what I could be if I made some changes. I don’t say this lightly but my life’s trajectory has made a full 180 degrees. I have no anxiety, I work out five days a week, I rarely miss a morning routine. Life changing shit!!”

Justin Erdtsieck

Brian Rast

Professional Poker Player

“I would highly recommend Elliot to anyone looking to improve their focus and mental approach.

When you know you need to improve something, even when you know what it is, it can still be very helpful to work with an expert.

His techniques work.”

“Elliot was instrumental in getting me to break through bad patterns of behavior that were preventing me from being the best version of myself and achieving my goals. I was able to almost immediately implement a change that I had been struggling with for over 5 years, and he has helped me actually stick with the change. If you have blocks in your life that are preventing you from getting where you want to be, Elliot is the person for you.”

David Sinick

CEO, Paleohacks / Ava Jane's Kitchen

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have met Elliot just as I started playing the $500/$1000 games in Macau.

I thought that helped more than anything in the world. Now as I move on from poker into the startup world, Elliot somehow manages to find a way to deliver even more value.

Wayne Yap

Tom Wang

“I’ve known Elliot for some time now. I never felt like I needed his service. I reached out to Elliot out of desperation during my battle with some health issues. My anxiety and depression levels were at an all time high. After just booking 1 call with Elliot, my anxiety levels came down about 80%. More importantly, he gave me the tools so the next time I feel like a panic attack is about to come on, I can handle it myself.”

“My life is absolutely different today than 1 year ago, in virtually every single aspect of my life. For the first time, my work with Elliot has allowed me to face some of the deepest parts of myself that were truly running the show. It allows me to invite more spaciousness and enjoy life more as I make better decisions running our portfolio of 4 companies (all on track for 8 and 9 figure valuations).”

Zion Kim


“I came to Elliot to help me deal with creative block. He gave me tools. He made me understand myself better. But the true magic of the session was the hypnosis. He guided me back into suppressed childhood memories. That experience helped me understand what was causing, not just creative block, but other reoccuring patterns of self-sabotage. After the session I started healing, because I finally understood where to start.

In the past month, I’ve painted more than in the year prior because our work together has changed my life.”

Boris Moshenkov


Lacey Jones

International Fashion Model | Founder of C.S.M. Skin Care

“Going through life without addressing trauma is like walking through mud. You might get where you want to go. But, it slows you down. Plus, it causes you to change how you show up in the world. Not just for others, but for yourself as well.

That’s where Elliot was a game changer for me. He immediately helped me with my trauma. After my first session, I was lighter. More importantly, I was hooked. I immediately booked future sessions. The progress we’ve made in helping me become me has been a revelation. I can’t express my gratitude enough. I’m looking forward to working with Elliot for years to come.”

“When I began working with Elliot it seemed like I was at the top of my game, but could I sense that there was still more room to grow and something was holding me in check.

In working with Elliot, I have eliminated a lifelong resistance that I didn’t even realize I had, which has allowed me to benefit both personally and financially.”

Scott deMoulin

Founder And CEO – Destiny Training Systems

“I was already financially successful before I started to work with Elliot, but I always felt like there was something that could be unlocked to increase my performance.

We quickly identified, and addressed, some things running in the background that were holding me back, which I’m very grateful for.

If you’re someone who knows there is more performance inside of you, get in touch with Elliot because he’s absolutely amazing.”

Ray Higdon

Andrew Hanoun

“Elliot is the CEO whisper. He has an uncanny ability to know exactly where to focus the sessions and which tools to use to produce immediate long lasting changes. Our sessions always felt like they went so quick, but the changes had permanence.

I will forever be grateful for the changes I’ve gotten from working with Elliot. fulfillment, and success.”

“I was certified in NLP in the 80s. I heard Elliot speak on Mike Dillard’s podcast a few years ago. I recognized his brilliant language patterns during the interview from my early training. After learning more about him I was committed to working with him as a client.

It’s been a huge help in my evolution. I’ve been amazed at how quickly he can tease out the source of an issue and then elegantly go after it and help me put it at rest.

Elliot is a key part of my current personal growth, and I couldn’t be happier about it.”

Jeff Hayes

Film Producer

“My experience with Elliot has been transformational in ways I never would have imaged. His techniques are non-invasive and extremely nurturing and the personal ‘connection’ gains that I have experienced have been life changing.

I am looking forward to continuing to work with Elliot and I am excited for what my own personal endeavors bring through his work.”
